<<I know there are many factors in everyone's lives that will effect this outcome, but doing the math is a simple thing to do.>>

The math you describe is shot full of assumptions.

For example, you suppose you will live to age 85. You suppose you will be able to earn 10% compounded on stocks. You haven't figured in the impact of taxes on Social security benefits or capital gains on sales of stocks.
